Stayed two nights mainly to see the addo elephant park which is well worth a visit. The hostel is basic, we stayed in a double room which was huge and decorated very nicely but quite damp. The kitchens small and the breakfast very minimal, it's difficult to eat if more than 4 people are staying. There's a pub attached which has pool table and WiFi and does food although choice is limited and there's nowhere else to eat close by. The staff are friendly and helpful.

On site is a restuarant with pub where you are likely to meet up with local farmers, game rangers, researchers. We have a variety of rooms - en suite doubles, doubles and twins with shared bathrooms, family rooms and camping. We are not a B&B but a backpackers/youth hostel ... more less
